I Finally Stamped... Something...


This was tough! I hadn't been able to really do much of anything creative for the last few weeks, so when I finally sat down to create, boy was it hard! I had no idea where I was going with this, but I had to start somewhere, so I pulled one of the very first stamp sets I ever bought out, and believe it or not I have never used it before now! I loved it when I got it, but then I quickly bought something else, and then something else, and yet I still couldn't let this one go. So here it is, my very first creation using Art Warehouse Stamps!

It's a start; nothing fancy, but a start!

Fairly simple to produce, had I actually known what I was doing with it. But as it was it took me a few hours of walking away and coming back. You would think it should be fabulous as much as I played with it. Oh well, it is what it is! We all have those days and those creations!

Well, my son starts preschool tomorrow and I am trying to get myself into a routine, so I am off to prepare snacks for the week and get all of my belongings by the door so we can be off without a hitch (yeah right!).

Hope you all have a fabulous Monday! I am just hoping not to cry when my little man gets out of the car for his very first day :-( I know he will be fine, but he has been with me exclusively for the last three years, it's just hard to let go...



What I used:
Stamps: Art Warehouse (Interactive Graphic Flowers), Autumn Leaves (Elegant Flourishes), Papertrey Ink (Mixed Messages)
Paper: Kraft Papertrey Ink, Black ?
Ink: Pallette Noir, Papertrey Berry Sorbet
Accessories: Bracelet Bling from Michaels for center of flower, Sakura White Gel Pen, Dimensionals, Ribbon, Silver cord, Cuttlebug and Tag Die

Very pretty, Kacey. I love the colors and the ribbon. I have the same stamps and I don't think I've used them yet either!
